Parent Review -Feb 2021

"Our 2 children have been going to Stepping Stones for a long time. They've both been through the nursery and now we use them for after school club. They both love all the staff and activities they provide. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Really easy to drop off and collect as right next to the car park".

"We have been sending our son to the baby room at Stepping Stones for the past 5 months and he absolutely loves it - he runs in everyday, always comes home tired from all the different activities they have been doing and the staff are all lovely - would highly recommend!"

Parent Review -Feb 2021

"Sending my girls to Stepping Stones has been one of my best decisions. Every member of staff are professional and genuinely friendly. There’s nothing better than to know that you have left your child in good hands. My daughter was having speech issues when she started, which was a big concern for me. I informed the staff and they actually encouraged her speech and before I could even have a doctor appointment, my daughter did not need it anymore. I definitely have and would recommend them to anyone.  They put a lot of effort into making sure my child is not only cared for, but is learning as much as possible during her time there. And she doesn’t ever want to miss a day!Thank you Stepping Stones!"

"I have used stepping stones for both my son and daughter! Over the past 13 years. My son often cries as he doesn’t want to leave! The staff have been very supportive to both myself and my son through some difficult times! Thank you!"

Parent Review - Feb 2021

"We always leave our daughter with Stepping Stones staff with all our confidence that she is going to have an active and exciting day. There isn't one day she hasn't been keen on going to nursery and she loves being there. The Staff are all very warm and friendly and always helpful and most importantly the always give me peace of mind that she is well looked after.

I love the outdoor space available for the children to play. Management is always very welcoming and answer questions and requests promptly. We are so happy with our daughters progress in learning.

Food is cooked on site which is a big plus. Our daughter eats everything every day! Thank you all at Stepping Stones".

What our parents and carers say about us!

"My Daughters vocabulary and speech is coming on leaps and bounds!"
"This place is wonderful. Cannot fault it. The staff have really helped my little girl come out of her shell. My daughter loved going here. Would highly recommend."
My daughter started here just 3 weeks ago and she absolutely loves it! Already her speech is coming along and she is so happy to get stuck in as soon as she gets there. The staff are all just so lovely, very welcoming and give their attention to all of the children. Truly such a beautiful nursery with great facilities amazing beautiful outdoor garden and space.
"My little girl started here last September in the Ladybird 2-3 year old room & absolutely  loves the nursery. I have a hard time trying to get her out of there! They are very flexible & have been able to accommodate our schedule changes. All the staff are lovely,  the facilities are great with large playrooms,  gardens & a great variety of toys.

My daughter moves to the pre-school room next month, the nursery have been great at transitioning the change & my daughter is so excited about nursery everyday!

I really like the Tapestry the online journal system which shows my child's development and I get to see photos of all her adventures!

I would definitely  recommend Stepping Stones as a friendly, caring & fun place for your child to grow & learn.
"The Nursery are in close contact with myself and partner keeping us all up to date with our daughters progress. We couldn't be more pleased with the Nursery and the staff - most definitely recommend the Nursery to anyone."

“I just wanted to take this opportunity to say a really big thank you for all your hard work over the last 4 1/2 years looking after one very excitable and bouncy little boy. You were all so welcoming in the baby unit tand settled right in and really looked forward to going to nursery every day. My most sincerest of thanks.”

“Jane – thank you for coming to my rescue when I had one week before I had to start work and my previous childcare let me down! You run a very well organised nursery.”

Thank you for everything you have done for Thomas and Alex over the years! They have had a fantastic time at Stepping Stones and it's an end of an era for all of us...

​To James - I will really miss you and nursery it was so fun with you. Thank you for the slash pad that was the best ever. It was so so fun. Love Thomas.

“We will miss you and take with us (and hopefully leave behind) the fondest of memories.

‘From the outset Stepping Stones Nursery had a very open welcoming approach and a can-do attitude to supporting our disabled child in their foundation/pre-school year. Our little girl has been safe, well cared for and very happy here. (The Nursery have worked well with visiting professionals including regular visits from the local authorities eg the Sensory Impairment team. Thank you – we are very grateful”

“Thank you for looking after me for 3 1/2 years and for teaching me all the clever things. I have had so much fun and will miss you lots. Look out for me in my new school uniform when I come to pick up and drop off my little brother…… cos i’m off to be a ‘schooley’! Love from Elliott.”

“Thank you VERY MUCH! for looking after me the past few years. I loved being at Stepping Stones and will miss you all lots! Lyla (& Mum).”

Erin will miss Stepping Stones but thanks to all your hard work she is well prepared to start School. Best Wishes for the future Erin, Vanessa and Grahame.

Dear Jane, James and the entire Stepping Stones Team – Thank you so much for taking great care of our children over the past eight years. During this time the nursery has been an integral part of their (and our) lives. The Team has always been friendly, warm, caring, welcoming and professional and both Delilah + Alfie have always enjoyed attending. As parents we have always enjoyed complete faith and trust in the care + service provided. You have always been 100% reliable and, without fail, always been able to help us out of tricky situations or unexpected emergencies. Thanks again from the Zollo Family. We will miss Stepping Stones.

Absolutely brilliant, when my 2 year old started here in September 2014, he could barely talk and was incredibly shy. Now, because of the amazing staff here, he’s really come out of his shell and doesn’t stop talking. I would recommend this nursery to everyone.

Lovely nursery, great staff and my son loves being there.

Big Thank You for looking after Charlotte, bit sad it's the end of an era. Charlotte has enjoyed her time here and love the memories of Sports Days and Christmas Plays - Thank you.

We have cherished watching our daughter grow in confidence and ability. Have a wonderful summer!

​"James - Thanks so much for all your hard work in the nursery and making it such a great place for the kids. Really appreciate you and the team being so accommodating especially with Rory's allergies & our diary changes. 

"Our Daughter has clearly enjoyed her time at Stepping Stones and has clearly thrived in this environment - I know she will miss every one of you and is very sad to leave!"

​We just wanted to say a huge thank you for making Rafes time at nursery so happy and enjoyable. He has developed into a confident and happy little boy who is now ready for the next chapter in his life. We really are so grateful!!

Thank you for the past 3 years! We are so proud of the little lady Eliza has become and that's all thanks to your wonderful staff for guiding Eliza. She has had the best 3 years being at your nursery and I could not have asked for anything better. I will miss dropping her off each morning and I know she will miss all the friends she has made. Your staff are amazing and I personally want to thank you all for making Eliza-Mai the person she is today - we will miss you all. Love Eliza-Mai & family.
